Yes, I dislike it more than One, Stuck, In A Little While, and Ultra Violet.

See, but I'll never get sick of WOWY, or Streets, but that song...I think it's cause ISHF is my mom's favorite I'm just like that. Her favorite on TUF is Pride, and that's my least favorite too, but really that's not her fault...that's Bono's fault.

In the end aren't we going to end up with like three different versions of I Will Follow or something?

It's good. It's a bit of an early version of the song really, and I'd say the 30 December 1989 performance is the definitive version of SAMTM.

Anybody who comes over to my place can have a listen to it!

If they screw up TUF, i'll never forgive them, and that's no joke. They could release HTDAB pt.2 and I'd forgive them. Hell, they could release October part 2 (which you might like but I wouldn't) and I'd forgive them. But if they mess up this TUF rerelease, I can't forgive them.


Is it wrong that I'm hoping for a rerecording of EPAA <_< I love the song, but I'm curious if Bono would like to clarify those lyrics XD

And more remixes of NYD and THBAO than you really want to hear in a row.

The UF remaster could be the best thing ever, but I fully expect them to fuck it up. After all, they need to keep some stuff in the vaults to release for the 40th anniversary cashgrab!

A few years ago I went through stages of being sick of WOWY and Streets... but I've come out the other side and I'm on a big Streets kick at the moment, especially. I loooove playing that on bass

And then with Boy, oh God, Boy, how many songs did they have in the 70s. And wwere they all good? No, but do I want an official release of Street Mission and Life on A Distant Planet? Yes.


I don't really know why I like Street Mission so much <__<
